A brake is a device which slows down and stops the motion of a rotating shaft within a certain time, depending on the entity of the mass to be braked.
We produce the following types of brakes:
– Multiple disc (or multidisc) – designed mainly for use in oil baths or low-medium speed dry applications;
– Single disc – used only dry.
– Caliper brakes – when the mass to be braked requires large discs; the modular versions have one or more calipers operated simultaneously or separately.
The control can be manual, hydraulic, pneumatic or electromagnetic.
They can operate in two different ways:
– spring released when the control generates the necessary braking effect.
– spring applied when braking is achieved without control, which causes the brake to disengage. These are mainly used as safety or holding brakes.
